Life goes on....
Friday, April 25, 2014
It’s late April now and I’m grateful the weather is getting warmer. Life is settling down a bit since my stepdad died and my mom is starting to get her bearings back. We’ve spent a lot of time with her going up every other weekend for awhile. She’s had a few firsts to get through without him, first Valentines, her birthday, his birthday, Easter; but she’s getting there and we’re grateful she’s doing okay. I still call her often but it’s not every day anymore; now I call every other day and she sounds happier most days.
My daughter recovered from surgery but broke her foot one night on her way to the bathroom. She missed the bottom step and tumbled. Poor girl just can’t seem to get a break but she’s in a walking cast now and out looking for a job again…
My health is okay. I’ve lost a few pounds in spite of not logging exercise or food but I’ve still got a ways to go. I have my good days and bad days with pain but it’s all tolerable. I’m walking a lot so the hips are protesting (arthritis) but it helps and if it’s really bad, I take some painkillers at night. I’m taking way less than I used to and go for days without taking anything so I’m really happy. I heard about a supplement (?) called D Ribose that I get at a health food store. It helps with the energy level and fibromyalgia pain and as long as I stay away from salt, I’m doing okay.
Thank you to all my spark friends for all the support you have shown me. It has really helped to know that I’m not alone and there is a place I can go to just vent and let go.
Life is good. I’m so happy the weather is getting warmer. I’m hoping we’ve seen the last of snow until next winter and am looking forward to getting back out into my garden.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter and that life is treating you well.
